The Huawei Y7 Prime (2018) is the predecessor of the Huawei Y7 Prime (2019). A budget entry is here but it has been around for a while already which explains why it was silently released. The new smartphone is kind of a global model of the Huawei Nova 2 Lite as introduced to Malaysia.
Where to Buy Huawei Y7 Prime (2018)
Released alongside the Huawei P20 series, the smartphone enters into the budget category unlike the former series that includes premium smartphones. It is suitable for people who wants something simple and stylish but still offers some of the premium specs.

Design and Display
As it appears, the Huawei Y7 Prime (2017) is a well built put together smartphone which will easily fit well in the nicely built smartphones category.
First, there is an obvious but thin bezel at the side with nicely sized bottom and top bezel. You’ve got Huawei boldy written at the bottom bezel up front which is kind of unnecessary and the usuals-camera, sensors and speaker.
The rear on the other hand is made of aluminium with the camera at the top left corner and Huawei’s logo at the bottom.
Considering its only an HD screen and an LCD one at that, display is somewhat subservient. However, being a budget smartphone, you might as well cut it some slack.
The Huawei Y7 Prime (2018) has a 5.99-inch sized display with a resolution of 1440 X 720 pixels and a 269 ppi pixel density.
Battery and Camera
As for the battery, you have quite enough juice to keep the smartphone powered on for a day of usage. Supplied by a 3, 000mAh Li-Po battery, you should be able to get enough usage time with the low resolution display. Like you might have guessed, the smartphone does not have fast charge.
Talking about optics, the smartphone has a decent setup in place. Which includes a dual rear camera with 13MP primary camera and a 2MP secondary sensor for gathering more depth.
This produces nice pictures with less detail on the background while focusing more on the subject. Taking selfies is done by the 8MP front camera.
Hardware and Software
Pertaining to the hardware, there is really nothing much to say besides that it befits a budget smartphone. This brings us to the Qualcomm MSM8937 Snapdragon 430 which runs up to 1.4GHz in clock speed. This is accompanied by an Adreno 505 GPU on board for graphics munching.
This goes on to include 3GB RAM and a 32GB built-in storage space with an expansion limit of 256GB. Likewise, the smartphone has an Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI layed over it.
